Weekend in Texas

The four of us spent a long weekend at the Gaylord Texan this past Thursday through Saturday! The Gaylord is such a fun, family-friendly place! We had such a great time!

We spent Friday at Paradise Springs Water Park, which is part of the resort.

We soaked-up lots of sun and enjoyed relaxing all day!

Brody loved the yummy lunch we had while we were there.

We came back to the room that afternoon and crashed for a little while before getting ready to go out that night.

Brody took this picture of Josh and me. He really liked trying to take pictures of all of us this weekend! :)

Before we went to eat on Thursday night and Friday night, Brody stopped by to visit the balloon animal guy. He made Brody a sword and holster both nights.

We headed back to the hotel after we ate so the kids could see the DreamWorks character parade. It was so fun!

Brody loved getting to see so many of his favorite movie characters in real life. It was so sweet to see how excited he was when he saw them!

We left the hotel on Saturday around lunchtime and headed to shop most of the afternoon before heading home late that night!

We will definitely be heading back to visit the Gaylord again soon!

We've stayed there before and really enjoyed it. The water park is new since we've been there, though! Such a fun place!

How fun! We are headed there next weekend. We went in December when they had all the Christmas stuff and it was cool. Did you go to Lego Discovery Center in the mall? My kids LOVED it!

that looks awesome, especially the water park! And I love how Brody has his sword holster on the front of him instead of the side :)

I was at the Gaylord Thurs-Sat, too! I attended BeautiControl's Celebration for the first time. Wow, what a gorgeous place. I can't wait to go back next year.
